Hello again,

So I have performed 2 test runs now using a fresh debian-wheezy
system, and my self-compiled kernels.

First test:
goldelico 3.12-wip-pvrsgx merged with 3.12.7, pvr modules builtin, debug
kernel panic at startup, see attached wip3127.log

Second test:
goldelico 3.12-wip-pvrsgx merged with 3.12.7, pvr modules not built
pvr modules compiled directly from graphics sdk
boots fine
modprobe pvrsrvkm fails with the following message:
root at gta04:/usr/local/lib# modprobe pvrsrvkm
[  359.127838] PVR: PVRCore_Init
[  359.139831] PVR: PVRSRVDriverProbe(pDevice=bf26cb90)
[  359.154907] pvrsrvkm pvrsrvkm: PVRSRVDriverProbe: error:
[  359.170318] pvrsrvkm: probe of pvrsrvkm failed with error -2
[  359.177551] PVR: PVRCore_Init: major device 245

I intend to do another test of 3.12-wip-pvrsgx without merged 3.12.7,
tomorrow, though I guess there is little point.

Maybe anyone wants to invest soem time into PVR (or just swear loudly,
feel free!) and find out whats going on here.

So far have a nice weekend everyone

kind regards
Josua Mayer
